One for the readers who miss the constant flood of baby pictures.
Wow. A full year of daily photos – done!
TJ really enjoyed his party – he loves hiding under things, so we set up a total of seven cubbies in our living/kitchen area, and invited “just” family (over a dozen people including my sister’s girls). The last photo is of my kids and my sister’s kids lined up in age order – now aged 1, 2, 3 and 4. That pleases me immensely.
So today my sister and her girls were visiting, and we went outside. As I was sitting talking to her, TJ stood up at the steps of the slide. It was so cute, like he was actually going to climb the ladder. Oh, lolz.
And then he put one foot up. Hilarious! And then he was standing on the first step – oh so proud of himself. Resisting the urge to grab my baby before he fell, I got close by and watched his epic journey. It took him about fifteen minutes, but he climbed ALL the way up, then carefully sorted himself out into the proper position, and then he slid down! I didn’t take a photo of him actually going down, because I was terrified he’d fall off the side and I was fully focused on 1being close to him. He was incredibly impressed with himself – as he should be. The first thing he did was turn around to climb back up (up the slope, since it was closer).
